GLOBUS 2024: Journey Through the Holy Land with Jordan - Faith-Based Travel (TGE)
14 Day Tour from Tel Aviv to Dead Sea
From the coast of the Mediterranean to the shores of the Sea of Galilee, a flood of emotions is to be expected on this moving religious tour through Israel and Jordan. What better way to immerse yourself in the treasured stories of Scripture than by standing at the very sites where Jesus walked on water, turned water into wine, and was baptized by John the Baptist? Follow in every footstep as you travel from the site of Jesus' birth in Bethlehem to the site of the Last Supper on Mount Zion. Tears of joy are balanced with bellows of laughter as you float effortlessly in the salt-laden waters of the Dead Sea, go four-wheeling through the sand dunes of Wadi Rum, and channel 'Indy' as you navigate the narrow gorge of the Siq at the rock-cut archaeological site of Petra made famous in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
